A service provider of the Port of Hamburg offers repair, maintenance and overhaul of the container and its attachments. The cleaning of shipping containers and tanks is carried out in addition to other services in workshops on site, as well as a mobile service by specially trained personnel. This service is irreplaceable, as the potential of the equipment is fully exploited with special technology and experience.
Potential for cost optimization is now to be leveraged in the execution of the cleaning processes. Depending on the condition of the equipment and the degree of contamination, an increase in energy efficiency of about 15% can be realized. In addition, initiatives have been developed to avoid production downtime as well as significant efficiency improvements. Especially in processes with persistent contamination there is potential for process optimization. Many processes are based on experiences and should now be rethought with the knowledge of the employees. The aim is to improve the calculation of costs per wash cycle, energy, wash program and consumables.
The service provider wanted to increase the efficiency of the entire operation and initiate a knowledge transfer. For this purpose, all relevant data on the process should be made available in digital form. The company was looking for a solution that had low hardware and software requirements, was quick to set up and easy to use, and was affordable for the company overall.
